Register to vote

Household electoral registration enquiry form

Reigate and Banstead will be carrying out the statutory Annual Household Electoral Registration Canvass from 12 July 2018. Every household in the borough will receive a Household Enquiry Form detailing the names of all electors we have registered to vote at the property. You need to respond as soon as possible to confirm the information is correct, if there are any changes, if anyone aged 16 and over should be added or if anyone has moved out of the property and should no longer be registered.

The form has a security code and you can respond quickly and easily online.

Household response 

Please respond immediately in order to save council funds. We are required by law to carry out this audit each year. Don’t forget, if you are a new elector, or have recently moved home, you must also go to the register to vote website to complete an individual online application (see details below).

Individual electoral registration

Registering to vote keeps your credit referencing up to date as well as ensuring you will be able to vote if another snap general election is called. If you are already registered to vote, you do not need to do so again.
